‘Endlessly Dumbing Down’ 5th September 2014

On Arts Extra last night  about 15 min in someone called Fionuala Meridith, when talking about Belfast Festival at Queens, said this… ‘We’re talking about so called high arts, high culture… the tendency locally and politically is to place the emphasis on social inclusion, accessibility, relevance, mass appeal – that’s all fine but I do think they’re right to try […]
